This was a quick and simple project for my kids ever growing toy collection. Didn’t want to spend a lot of time on something that would get abused to no end, so i went to Lowes and got some 3/4 oak ply and started cutting. Made a few drawers with some old school drawer slides and few hours later have a solid piece of furniture to store kids toys in. I designed it as two separate pieces that you can stack (located with a dowel pins) or separate them and move them around, back-to-back etc… Baskets with some frilly fabric from Target will go into the bays to help organize and give it more put together look. Stain was some old Minwax golden oak (everyone has a few cans of this i would imagine laying around, right) and a finish of General finish polyacrylic semi-gloss. Fast and cheap!

Great job. I wish I could make fast and cheap projects that turned out this good. Very versatile design, should work out great for you.

-- You will never build it unless you try. The second one always turns out better.
